Being recognized for their longtime contributions to Grandma’s Marathon are:

Brad Miller, Minnesota Department of Transportation
John Schlangen, Lake County Highway Department
 
These three will receive their awards at a breakfast ceremony on Thursday, June 20 at 7 a.m. at Duluth’s Radisson Hotel.
 
Named after the late Minnesota governor who was a large supporter of the annual event, the award is given annually to up to three current or former public employees or elected officials. In 2006, Grandma’s Marathon created the Rudy Perpich Public Service Award to recognize the many current or former public employees and elected officials who have exhibited dedication and service to the event.
 
The 8th annual Rudy Perpich Public Service Award Breakfast is the first of many events being held during Grandma’s Marathon weekend, presented by Wells Fargo and Toyota. The Essentia Health Fitness & Health Expo begins at 5 p.m. June 20 and continues all day Friday, June 21. Other Friday events include the Michelina’s All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner, the Whipper Snapper Races for Kids, guest speaking presentations, the William A. Irvin 5K and free live entertainment in Canal Park.
